    The best time to go is during the night. The church is lit up and you are almost alone.

    Entering just Piazza San Pietro is free if you are patient enough to stand in the line. However, if you wish to tour the chapel and museum as well, start your way from the museum.

    The colonnade is a handy place to shade from the sun, and refill your water bottle.

    Beautiful architecture, the Basilica is huge and absolutely stunning! The visit is free don't buy the "Skip the line" tickets from the people selling them on the way there, it's not worth it.

    To skip the line: wake up early. Go to the Basilica at 7AM. Don't forget to climb to the Dome if your heart is in good condition :)

    This place will first make you a believer, then it'll make you cheat all the people waiting in line and "nudge" your way into the top :)

    There are two marble spots either side of the obelisk in the middle of the square. If you can stand and look at the colonnade from here, you can only see the one pillar in each row.

    Great place. You have to wait very long in the queue to get in, but it is it worth. And if you get in, buy a ticket and go straight to the top, trust me.
